*Fighter missed weight. Fight will go on. However, as it was de Lima’s second fail in a row, he was fined 30% of purse. Fighters are ordinarily fined 20% of purse for missing by the regulating commission, but the UFC has contractual authority to increase the amount. All parties agreed to the fine.
Fighters used to weigh-in in the early evening the day before the fight. Unfortunately, the body does not always rehydrate within 24 hours, leaving the brain more susceptible to injury. Many fighters took IVs in an attempt to rehydrate sufficiently. However, when the UFC selected the US Anti-Doping Agency as their independent drug testing body, the use of IVs was prohibited, as it can mask the use of PEDs. In response, the UFC has instituted a new, safer procedure, wherein fighters are given a two-hour window in which to weigh in, on the morning of the day before the fight.
